# Individual: This level is covered by the gendered subtropes BastardGirlfriend and BastardBoyfriend. Putting individual characters as example in the supertrope should only be done if the character is of unknown gender or a genderless shapeshifter/alien/whatever. A character that giving KickTheDog, MoralEventHorizon (or even ShootTheDog) to another character (especially if they making the character into a [[TheWoobie woobie]]) also works.

* Most novels by the Creator/MarquisDeSade (the guy "sadism" is named after) stays strictly in Romanticized Abuse territory, being about unrestrained sadism rather than [[SafeSaneAndConsensual mutual]] sadomasochism. It's all played for FetishFuel and political satire about how hypocritical, oppressive, and unjust the socioeconomic system really was.

* ToddInTheShadows frequently complains about songs that sound like this. In addition to the above mentioned "E.T.", there's "Tonight (I'm Fucking You)", "Give Me Everything" ("Grab somebody sexy, tell 'em hey \ Give me everything tonight!") "Blurred Lines", [[BrunoMars "Gorilla"]]...

* ''Literature/TheShiek'' is a textbook example. Young, rebellious heroine is captured and repeatedly raped by a cringing racial stereotype until the (unintentional) StockholmSyndrome kicks in and she falls in love with him. What makes it worse is that the psychological trauma the rapes inflict on her is not glossed over; they're quite close to an accurate portrayal of PTSD. It makes her "change of heart" all the more jarring, and we're meant to root for a relationship between a rapist and his mentally broken victim.

* The NewWorldOfDarkness book ''Inferno'', covering demons, is based on the seven deadly sins, and the "lust" part is designed for creating characters (of either gender) who fit this trope.

* ''Film/Passengers2016'': One of the main criticisms against the film. Jim for all intents and purposes [[spoiler: stalks Aurora and then he wakes her up, telling her that her pod malfunctioned and romancing her under that pretense, which from an ethical standpoint makes their sexual relationship akin to rape - no different than if he had kidnapped her while hiding his true identity and then proceeded to woo her without her knowing he was her kidnapper. She understandably calls his action murder after finding out.]] However, it never portrays Jim as having been right in doing this, and he himself says this was wrong. Aurora reacts realistically and nearly kills him over this. It's only after they save the ship together that she finally forgives him.
